That's Weird, Grandma

I've always admired comedians who have the ability to make errybody laugh. Like, errybody. That's like, everyone from your Pep-pep and your Mee-maw to your six-year-old cousin to your teenage brother who's going through his asshole phase. These performers and their shows can be difficult to find, but this Sunday, I found one. Yip!

That's Weird, Grandma is one of those fabulous, family-appropriate shows that can easily get all up inside yo' body and tickle all up on yo' funny bone. Every Sunday afternoon at 2 and every Monday night at 8, a gaggle of talented actors presents a show consisting of a handful of plays adapted from works written by students in the Chicago Public School system.

You should go.
